Australia will bid to go top of the World Cup table when they take on Bangladesh at Trent Bridge.
New Zealand lead the way after their thrilling four-wicket win against South Africa on Wednesday, but Australia are in a healthy position – behind England in third place – after four wins from their first five games.
Bangladesh though have hopes of a top-four finish themselves after securing their second tournament win by beating the West Indies in their last match.
One to watch
Shakib Al Hasan is the number one all-rounder in the ICC rankings and in prime form. The 32-year-old Bangladesh star is the World Cup’s top scorer with his 384-run haul including centuries against England and the West Indies. His controlled left-arm spin bowling and superb fielding also adds to Bangladesh’s armoury and Australia know they must limit his impact on events.

Quote of the day
It was a red-letter day for South Africa batsman Hashim Amla.
Kane-ing the attack
Kane Williamson played an array of shots around the wicket in his wonderful 106 not out. But the pick of the bunch was a majestic on-drive off Chris Morris which flew to the boundary.
